If Dublin looses Hainan, wouldn't another airline have to apply for a licence to operate from China? I can't see anyone else giving it a go, if the loads are as bad as reported.

The timing of that seems a bit odd, just as the government is heading into its twilight days.

I would have thought an EI regional ATR flight would have come before a Ryanair 737 service if the demand was there.
